The front connector decided to fail at a 9x mix. The bang was loud enough to make my ears ring under my ear muffs
heh I was going to tell you to use iron pipes and fittings as the cartridge looked a bit dangerous to me

You really are taking your membership in the epoxy mini hybrid club very seriously :D

Very odd failure though, I never managed to bisect a female thread so thoroughly :shock: you must have had a major area unsupported.

You live, you learn, and as long as you don't damage your hearing along the way or get shrapnel embedded in your face, it's just fine :)

:D explosion :D

first a succesful 8x mix shot;

(no video footage worth posting)

Then I tried a 12x mix, but that was a bit too much I guess.

The front is pretty much FUBAR, but it takes quite an idiot to put 84 bar
(1200 psi) in an unrated pvc fitting :D
I took some safety precautions to catch shrapnel and protect my ears, so nothing has been damaged :roll:

No, it's the connector epoxied in the front of the cartridge, as seen on this pic;

It wasn't the smartest design I think, too much unsupported surface.
I can't complain about the epoxy however, it's still firmly in place :D

Any details of the sabot?

I still stand by the statement where I wrote:You really are taking your membership in the epoxy mini hybrid club very seriously

I just wrapped it in ducttape until it fitted nicely inside the barrel, I put some grease on the pin so it would slide of more easily.
No nice machined stuff here :D

Maybe i'm going to do something with coke bottles and hybrid mixtures for new years eve.... :roll:

parents completely freaked out, they tought I had blown myself to pieces :P

this hybrid actually resembles one I started quite a while back, but never finished, since I discovered our local gun laws (anything with a calibre greater than 5mm is considered a firearm and is thus illegal)
